An Icy Paris Fountain

Vicki and I have never stayed in a hotel in Paris. Each time we've rented an apartment that is actually a part of the Palais Royal complex. So when we open our back door or look out of the window we see this courtyard and fountain. We have only been to Paris in the winter so it gets pretty cold, as you can see.
